Gifted Enrichment Overview & History
This elective, started in the 2010-2011 academic year, has significantly expanded the offerings in the high school for the gifted education student. Gifted Enrichment is unlike any experience some in the past have understood as the “gifted program”. The Gifted Enrichment elective is a course in which the content and product(s) are designed and driven by the students and guided by the Gifted Support Teacher. The curriculum is designed to be highly challenging and based strictly on the development of the students’ interests, aptitudes and strengths. Gifted Enrichment is an elective offered to those students who are receiving gifted support services through a current Gifted Individual Education Plan (GIEP) and is offered at Honors-level credit to grades nine (9) through twelve (12).
Offered one (1), two (2), three (3) or five (5) days per week.
One (1) Semester in length - can be taken multiple semesters.
Grades nine (9) through twelve (12)
